AA Meeting

Open to Off Campus Guests
The Society Room, Bristol Center, Map #56

On Sunday mornings a group of 15 to 35 people, men and women from college-age to old-age, meet for a one-hour Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) discussion meeting. AA meetings begin with a few readings including a preamble, pasted below, which defines what AA is and isn’t.

 After the readings and group announcements, the person leading the meeting will ask if there are any newcomers or visitors. There is no requirement to introduce oneself. It is optional, but in doing so, the group can welcome a visitor. Then the chairperson will ask for discussion topics related to alcohol and alcoholism.

For the next hour, people will discuss the topic as it relates to living a sober life. Topics may range, for example, from how to live a sober life with stress, sadness, anger, etc; how to deal with resentment; how to deal with peer pressure; how to find inner peace; or how to apply the suggested steps of AA to living life. Participation is optional.

All are welcome. This is an open meeting – you are welcome to attend whether you are just curious about AA or if you think you might have a problem or if you think you want to stop drinking or you know someone who needs to stop drinking.

AA’s Preamble

“Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism.  The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking.  There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.”
